Groceries Shopping - 11 Things Your Grocer Won't Tell You.

Smart Groceries Shopping.

>>>> 1) There's no perfect time to do your groceries shopping...Supermarkets usually receive food deliveries 1 or 2 times a week, but nowadays most groceries stores are getting shipments daily. The mindset that certain items are going to be a lot fresher on certain days does not hold true any longer.

>>>> 2) Mornings are better...No matter what day you patronize, morning are an perfect time to get the freshest produce and dairy products. Stock is refilled from the past day 1st thing in the morning [also, the milk case has simply been covered in a refrigeration blanket overnight].

>>>> 3) Watch out for the small fruit displays...Most stores have Hugh produce displays, and there able to have them that big because they sell them very fast. If you see smaller displays, the store most likely does not go through its produce as rapidly...Which means, naturally, that it's been sitting on that display for much longer.

>>>> 4) Big superstores chains are not any cheaper... Save daily, everyday low-pricing stores such as Walmart, Winn-Dixie and Food Lion will not necessarily give you the best deals. Higher-end supermarkets like A&P or Wegmans frequently offer sale prices that, if you use your coupons wisely, will cost you less than those at everyday low-pricing superstores.

>>>> 5) Wash your hands...The push handgrips on shopping carts are a perfect place for bacteria. People who are sick will almost for certain have germs on their hands, and the dampness and body oils on the shopping cart handle are a host for germs to grow.

>>>> 6) Be careful of foreign fruits... The normal produce section carries over 100 assorted items. Obviously, apples, oranges and bananas sell quicker than, say, a Annona cherimola. Commonly, the standard fruits and veggies are going to sell faster, which means they will be refilled more quickly.

>>>> 7) Do the scent exam...If you are picking up a more unusual product, take the time to smell it, feel it and, when if you're not sure, ask the produce manager, since there's a probability it has been sitting for longer.

>>>> 8) Don't go by price tags alone... Alternatively, look at the cost-per-unit tag on the shelf, which will show the actual value of each product. Folks all of the time assume they will save the most if they purchase the largest size. Simply if you look at the price per unit, frequently the midway size will offer the best value.

>>>> 9) Don't be taken in by fancy looking displays...Folks trust that since the items are stacked high and attractively organized, there's a deal for them. But there's only a sales event about half of the time, so make certain to read the signs cautiously prior to filling your shopping cart.

>>>> 10) It never hurts to ask about an item...Sometimes the bakery will mark down cakes and baked goods with the next day's sell-by date on them just by you asking. However bare in mind that independent or independently owned stores are the most likely to give you a deal like this.

>>>> 11) Select the freezer...Numerous fish come from overseas, so it's already been frozen or stored on ice before its at your grocery store's fish department. By checking the display signs for the words [previously frozen], and if you see that, you might as well buy the same thing from the freezer section.

Very Helpful Article. Thanks! I heard about a new site at Church. www.mygroceryspy.com It compares prices at the top stores here in Atlanta. From what I’ve read, it updates twice a week and shows where the lowest prices are on a few hundred items. You can print out your shopping list or have it sent to your phone. (I’m not savvy enough for that though). I email them since their not up yet, and they told me they will be up in January in Atlanta and Birmingham AL. then other cities. I can’t wait to try it.
